All Rutherford had to do was catch 3 rugby balls shot high into the air by a machine. He of course dropped one and only won £10,000 not £1 million for charity.
This reminds me of when my college coach asked the guys, "How did you get into track?"
It was so embarrassing when half the guys answered, "We got cut from the other sports."
